Last game: 45-24 loss @ Cincinnati
Next game: Oct. 1 @ Nebraska
Indiana football got off to a horrid start in the first half against Cincinnati in Week 4, trailing 38-10 at halftime. Though the Hoosiers never quit on the game and held the Bearcats to just seven second half points, it was too big of a gap to fill for a comeback. The secondary for the Hoosiers got ripped apart by Ben Bryant and Tyler Scott, and the offensive line gave Connor Bazelak little-to-no time to actually make decisions and quality throws, even though he finished with 354 passing yards.
The keys for the Hoosiers to compete against Nebraska on the road will be limiting Casey Thompson and Trey Palmer in the passing game and running all over the defense, which as I stated earlier, is one of the worst in the country in rushing yards allowed per game. If Shaun Shivers and Josh Henderson can establish themselves early in this game, the Hoosiers should have no problem leaving Lincoln with its second Big Ten win of the season.
